How to watch Cronulla Sharks vs Canberra Raiders live and NRL match preview
Can the Sharks pull off victory over the Raiders to help skipper Wade Graham celebrate his 250th NRL game in style?
The Sharks will be missing centre Jesse Ramien against the Raiders after he copped a three week suspension for a high tackle on Dragon Matt Dufty. Coach John Morris has called up Mawene Hiroti as his replacement.
The Raiders are unchanged from the side which proved too strong for Wests Tigers last week. Coach Ricky Stuart has decided not to bring back co-captain Jarrod Croker, who needs conditioning after his off-season shoulder surgery.
Sharks vs Raiders kick-off time
The final match of the 2nd round kicks off at 6:15pm AEDT on Sunday 21 March at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium in Kogarah.

Sharks vs Raiders prediction
The Raiders have won their past four games against the Sharks. Add that stat in with how they looked in last weeks performance and it's hard to go past them this week.
Canberra should monster Cronulla in the forwards, giving halves George Williams and Jack Wighton time and space to weave their magic. The only saving grace for the Sharks is that they'll be better prepared for wet weather footy after last weeks rain soaked game against the Dragons. We'll lean for Raiders by 12 points
